Tagged by Kim!

I was tagged by Kim at http://inkedupkim.blogspot.com/ I'm not sure how you add a hot link on here, so I've put the url -- if someone can tell me what needs to happen to make it interactive it would be most appreciated!

I'll do my best to comply with the 7 things about me and tagging 7 others! ;-)

Here goes:

1) I've been a lot better about tolerating WARM temperatures ever since I went to Las Vegas for a Stampin Up convention -- Where it was a sweltering 118 degrees the day we arrived. All the whining and complaining I had done about warm Seattle weather up to that point felt pretty wimpy after being in REALLY WARM temps! (Warm in Seattle used to mean 85-90 degrees of unbearable misery for me)!! But it's a freakin' 98 degrees today - and though it's a little on the warm side, I know better than to complain...when we hit 110 I'll see if I can pull a little whine out for y'all!

2) I have been stamping since about 1980 or so...my first stamps were from a home accessories store at our local mall. I made some holiday cards and was embossing with a candle when I tipped it over and almost burned my parents living room!!!

3) I have enough MAY ARTS ribbon to open a store! ;-)

4) Favorite place to eat is a restaurant called Cutters at the Seattle waterfront...if you are ever in town, PLEASE make a point of stopping in to have a bite! If you are lucky enough to get my favorite waiter, Hank, you will know why I keep going back!

5) I would love to be able to quit my day job and spend all of my time creating stamped items and scrapbooks! I especially like making little mini scrapbooks rather than the big 12x12 albums! (Many of you could probably figure that out already)

6) I have the world's best husband!!! That's not to say I don't get mad at him every once in a while, but overall he is the BEST in the whole wide world!! :)

7)I have an intense fear of something that is creepy/crawly.....what do you think it is?

Let's make a little game out of this and the people who post correctly will have a chance to win some blog candy!!

I think it will be ribbons (May Arts, because they are my faves right now) and it will include some very neat faux suede ribbon in olive green, and several others!!! I don't have the new camera cord yet to upload pix...but hubby says one is on the way! Once I can put pics up again, I will post some pics of the pretty ribbons that you all have a chance to blog for! I'll take any entries on this post through Sunday at 10:00 p.m. If not one gets it right, I'll put all entries into a hat and have hubby 'pick a winner'....hahahaha...that sounds so sophomoric and gross, doesn't it?

What's your guess? (Oh, and be sure to leave a way for me to get in touch with you or make sure that you check back on Monday for the winning name!)

I will have to add the people that I've tagged in a bit...I'm not sure who I will include...

Happy Stampin, Everyone! Now go get yourselves a latte!

I'm going to guess that it's centipedes. I'm not scared of them, but I do think they're gross.

Hi Elaine!
You have a wonderful blog and I can't wait for you to start downloading your pics. I found your site through Kim. Thank you for sharing... btw,Kim tagged me also! In response to your question, I think it's a caterpillar. I can't stand them:)

Allison said...

Cockroaches? After learning that lobsters and cockroaches are related, it just grosses me out to think about eating lobster!

Angel W said...

Snakes??? Personally I HATE spiders. My mom hates snakes though and those are definitely creepy, crawly!

Melissia said...

Now that I see your other post, I am changing my guess to cockroaches!

Denise... said...

Hmmm...different sizes? Spiders come in different sizes...so do cockroaches and caterpillars! I'd be afraid any cockroach, so I'll go with that one.

Sara said...

I hate spiders, I know that was already quessed but it has to be spiders. They come in all sizes, small little ones and then those larger ones that are known to attack - The recluse. I just hate them, had one come after me in the shower once - what do you do there???

Linda SS said...

Spiders? They freak me out no matter what size they are. They seem to have eyes all over their heads that are watching me. YUUK...I'm itchy just thinking about them now.

Shannon said...

It may be too late to guess, but when we lived in Northern California we had these gross bugs called
POTATO BUGS. They are disgusting. They freaked me out and they use to fall in our pool. Yuck. So since you are in that neck of the woods, that is my guess.

Jan Scholl said...

I hate earwigs-so that is my guess. havent seen them yet but its too dry I think. They like my mail box-can you imagine getting your favorite stamping magazine with these yucky thing all over it? I dont kill them tho-I scoop them up and take them to the fields.

Amber said...

I'm going to guess cockroaches because they are absolutely disgusting and impossible to kill!! I'm so scard of them! Luckily, I never see any around here. Thanks for the blog candy!

I think it's spiders. My skin crawls just thinking about them! YUCK!!!

SpAzzGiRL said...

I was gonna say spider too, but looks as though that may not be correct.

Lilian said...

i'm going to guess those silver dust bug thingies... :)

doverdi said...

My guess would have to be either centipedes (I hate these things), Praying Mantis or June Bugs/Beetle bugs. Anything creepy crawly freeks me out. lol

tyrymom29 said...

I HATE earwigs (centipeeds) and of course those big june bugs......too But my worse fear is SPIDERS!!!!!!!! ANY they are sooooo gross

Suzy said...

I am going to guess scorpions because they are my greatest fear!
